Let’s face it. We are the ones who have been killing animals for centuries, and it has become one of the most dominant reason for their extinction. However, even after our evil sin, an unexpected and ancient creature has made a startling comeback in off the coast of Australia, Ball’s Pyramid.
Let’s find out what it is.
..the height of this peak reaching 1,844 feet.
Ball’s Pyramid is actually the remains of an ancient volcano..
..and surprisingly, it contains this strange surviving member of a very rare and special species of animal.
Well, yes, I’m talking about these black-armored, who are living in this Island.
These species disappeared near 1918..
..the last one of this species was seen alive in 1920.
..the insect remains on Ball’s Pyramid, about 500 feet up.
..a tiny colony of 24 Lord Howe stick insect. They successfully completed their mission.
The guys told that these bugs were as big as they thought, being six inches in length. Now these insects are recognized as the heaviest flightless stick insects in the world.
